Animals compete for...
HERBIVORES:
They only eat Plants
The animals which eat the widest range of plants are the most likely to
be successful
CARNIVORES:
They only eat Meat
They compete for prey
The selected prey is likely to be sought after by other animals too the
most likely to be successful will be the one who is best adapted to their
habitat
Longer legs & sharpe eyes are successful adaptations to compete
amongst other carnivores (features which are passed to offspring)
